On his summer vacation in Crawford, Texas, George Bush read Albert Camus' novel The Stranger.
White House spokesman Tony Snow said Bush "found it an interesting book and a quick read" and talked about it with aides. "I don't want to go too deep into it, but we discussed the origins of existentialism," said Snow. [source]
"Let me get this straight, T. Instead of God and liberals, I'm responsible for my actions? Get me another mojito, Maria."
Bush just recently discovered The Stranger, and I'm the one Yale rejected.
Perhaps on his next vacation (…next week), he can read "Bartleby the Scrivener." It's even shorter than The Stranger!
I was tempted to say The Crying of Lot 49, but, like the Bush administration, the book never really delivers all it promises.
